Warm weather and sunshine are returning to Alaska, and the snow is quickly disappearing for the summer. Sea ice still rings the northern shores of the state on May 4, 2004, while in the south, sediment from the spring run-off colors the water tan and green. Further signs of spring can be seen in Alaska’s interior, which is beginning to turn green. Despite a generous amount of snow this winter, the region is in a mild hydrological drought...

Climate data show that winter temperatures in the northernmost regions of the world have warmed alarmingly in a very short period. Parts of Alaska and northern Eurasia, for example, have warmed by nearly 11 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter months over the past 30 years. Climate evidence from the past four centuries gleaned from ice cores, lake cores, and tree rings indicates a gentler warming trend that extends back 400 years.This image shows the winter temperature trend in the Arctic from 1966 ...
